Imagine this. After painstaking research and careful drafting, your brief is ready to be filed in a high-stakes case. You ask your paralegal to put together the exhibits to the brief while you make a final review of its substance. Following that, you quickly review the exhibits to make sure the correct documents are included, sign the brief, and turn it over to your assistant to file. All that is left is to wait for confirmation of electronic filing, e-mail a copy to your client, and then head down to Indaco to meet your friends for a pizza to celebrate a successful filing of your winning brief. Not so fast, my friends. All may not have gone as planned.
